Activity Description

Cheer on runners at the Mile 15 Aid Station of The Austin Marathon! You will be setting up the aid station before the race starts, and then handing out water, sports drinks, and cheering on runners as they reach mile 15! You will also help break down the aid station and clean up the street before it reopens to traffic after the last runner passes. The aid station will be at Speedway and 45th.

The Austin Marathon strives to improve the lives of those around us through meaningful events and partnerships. This goes beyond the participants and reaches into the realms of spectators, passersby, the community as a whole, and other companies and community partners, including Generation SERVE!
